“I hate autobiographies. They’re so fake. The ones I hate the most are those written by individuals who have spent their lives deceiving people and then, when they see their careers (or their lives) coming to an end, they decide it’s time to be honest. But they never really are. They feel the need to put ‘their side of the story’, as if they were in court of law, or they suddenly want to tell you about secret affairs they were having with people who were really ugly, but really powerful… And don’t get me started on the politician who once said you should vote for him because you can trust him, then you voted for him and he broke that trust, and now he wants to tell you how ┬ámuch pressure he was under.” -The life and rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah, Benjamin Zephaniah.
